We serve the American people, striving to provide the most effective engineering and environmental science solutions to the nation’s complex problems affecting national security, the economy, and the environment in which we live.

The U.S. Army Engineer Institute for Water Resources (IWR) was formed to provide forward-looking analysis and research in developing planning methodologies to aid the Civil Works program. IWR is the USACE center of expertise for integrated water resources management, focusing on planning analysis and hydrologic engineering and on the collection, management and dissemination of Civil Works and navigation information, including the nation’s waterborne commerce data. It also serves as the USACE center of expertise for collaborative planning and environmental conflict resolution.

In support of IWR's programs and projects, we hire economists, planners, environmental specialists, physical scientists, hydrologists, civil engineers, computer scientists and others.  Check our our Mission and Vision to learn more!
